Mrs. Kinslow's 1st Grade ELA Class
Welcome to Our Class Site
Welcome to the 2018-2019 School Year! I am so excited to be your student's first grade ELA teacher. Please use this website to be kept up to date on important events, homework, reminders and to see what we are learning in class each week. If you have any questions or would like to communicate with me, please reach out to me via email (email@example.com) or message me via REMIND.
It is not too late to join - registration will open for the month of November on Monday, October 15.
I will be teaching an after school enrichment this year. It will be American Sign Language for Children. This will be for Kinder & First Grade on Wednesdays from 2:15-3:15pm. It will be a lot of fun for children to immerse themselves in Sign Language through dancing and music - which they love to do! Please email me or REMIND me if you have any questions about the program. You may register for this enrichment and other enrichments online at the ACSW store.
